The nrate/min is virtually unchanged. I saw the temporary 600test spike ~1520 mins. ago where the pair I received went from n=373729 to n=374380 in a 6 min. span. Since then, I received n=374428 and n=374480 6 and 12 mins. later respectively . The n=48 and n=52 gaps in 6 mins. each is consistent with my earlier analysis of n=50 every 6 mins.
This tells me that Sheep either brought his 2 LLRing machines (all that we are aware of that he has) and cached them at 300 tests or he found an extra 4 machines for a total of 6, and cached each at 100 tests. No problems. If we reach n=385K, I'll be happy...extremely so if we get to n=390K. Gary

Changed my mind, added 6 cores.

I'm finding out the llrnet servers are not that robust, or cooperative, and have a mind of their own.
You running it under M$ or *nix ? They act differently...

I remember reading once on the Riesel Sieve forums that besides the basic LLRnet server included with the LLRnet client (the one we're using), they had made a whole variety of different LLRnet servers, some more complex than the others. None of those alternate LLRnet servers were released publicly, but one of the admins there said that they'd be glad to give them out to anyone who asked.

Ah, that explains it. I noticed that we had jumped from ~8n/min to ~10n/min in the last few hours. We still have well more than plenty of pairs in the server to cover our needs.
With you adding your cores, we have a chance at n=385K now I think. I'm very curious to see who takes 1st place in this rally. I brought a fair amount more firepower this time around. Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 20080309 at 05:09

I use Slackware on the firewall, Fedora on the PS3, Solaris 8 on the UltraSPARC, WinXP on the laptop & "family" PC and Gentoo on everything else (Athlon, Xeon, PowerMac, dualboot laptop), though I've been trying (unsuccessfully) for a week to get Kubuntu on my octo. We use mostly RHELAS4 at work, with a couple of YDL XServes and PowerMacs.

You know, I find it kind of odd that we've only had two or three primes reported from this rally so far, given the huge range that we've tested. Maybe all those primes are just sitting around "hiding" while we're waiting for users to report them to the top5000?
In other news, it looks like the rally won't have a problem making it to n=385K. How about we aim for n=390K then? Last fiddled with by mdettweiler on 20080309 at 13:05 Reason: typo

The range we've processed isn't extremely huge because it's 1/6th as many k's. We're processing a higher range than in rally 1. The odds of a prime are < 1 in 5000 vs. > 1 in 4000. Also, the # of k/n pairs should be less too, even if we have have the same firewpower. When we have a 24hour rally around n=500K, 12 primes will be close to the expectation with the same firepower...much longer testing time for each pair and less chance of each being prime. Gary
